george w. bush, george w. bush, george w. bush. car going back in the ditch and conde is driving it. >> dana: think of the video. >> andrea: exactly. one romney source told me months ago the goal of their campaign was to do no harm. and i think if they are going to do no harm, they will go with a safe bet, someone like rob portman, someone like -- >> eric: can i? >> andrea: very boring. >> eric: that is the problem with the romney campaign. >> bob: right. >> eric: i mentioned in the "a" block. they are defending boos, defending bank, defending bain. >> dana: not alcohol. >> eric: get off the defensehe . >> bob: you don't -- >> greg: they need alan west. it would blow everybody up. >> bob: it certainly would. >> dana: including bob's head. >> bob: if you are trying to become president don't play it safe. if you are incumbent, you say yes. the way they are doing this, if they take portman, it's not, vice presidents don't give you much. we know that. maybe a few points. rubio could give you a few points and win florida. the rest of the people -- >> andrea: playing a safe is a theme we
spending programs hurt the economy. they have a new bock by the george w. bush institute the four percent solution. i smoke to former governor jeb bush earlier. >> it is great to be with you. >> i see the governors running on campaign of reform and cuttin budget under control. they get in office and then they beat the day lights out of them because they kept ape campaign promise. scott walker in wisconsin, and rick scott in florida, and so what are we to make of the fact that people don't want them to fulfill the promises? >> i think they do. you earn people's respect over the long hall if people want to be popular than do what is right. i admire what rick scott is doing in florida and scott walker went in a fire storm and came out stronger because of it people want genuine and they want people to understand the concerns and also want leaders and they want people to lay out an agenda and execute on that agenda passion and conviction . >> people don't understand in the state level the budget doesn't have to balance. it is not like the feds who are borrowing money and putting it off. what a
and palestiniwork it o. president clinton, george w. bush and obama have all refused. in the 2008 campaign, mr. obama declared his support for jerusalem as the israeli capital, but didn't preclude negotiations. romney himself has declined to criticize the president while abroad, but he unloaded on him earlier this week. >> president obama is fond of lecturing israel's leaders. he was even caught by a microphone deriding them. >> some saw the timing of the ceremony, a day before romney travels to israel, as an efforts to upstage him. democrats denied him. >> that's not true at all because it's john boehner and eric cantor who set the time frame for this. >> polls give the president a substantial lead over mitt romney among jewish voters, but not nearly as big as the lead he enjoyed over john mccain. the romney camp hopes just reducing the advantage will help change the outcome in november. brett? >> bret: wendell goler, thank you. the opening ceremony for the summer olympics is going on right now in london. more than 10,000 athletes from 200 countries will compete in 34 venues. attendance is ex
is over. who do you blame for the economic recovery, obama, congress, at the bottom is george w. bush. they can't blame george w. bush anymore. >> you will never grow the obamacare looming and dodd-frank and cap and trade. if you wanted to grow the economy, elect a new president. >> you mentioned tax megedon, he is putting a huge destructive force in place. >> sean: there is an unknown percentage of people that have been so impacted by these bad economic decisions they are going out in force.
policy speeches with a bit of a grain of salt, paul. remember when george w. bush was running for president he talked about a more humble foreign policy. obama promised to close down guantanamo. he extended many of president bush's policies. so it is hard to say at this stage of the game what mitt romney really means and what and how he might act as commander in chief. >> and in afghanistan and syria, dan, pretty general comments by governor romney, not real specific, particularly on syria which is the hottest issue now going. pretty much stayed a step back about saying what he would do. >> syria is a difficult issue. afghanistan the president said he is pulling troops down. it is difficult for romney to say i will push troops back up. >> particularly when the american public seems to be war weary and supports this withdrawal. >> i think matt made an important distinction that needs to be emphasized. this isn't just president obama this is modern democratic foreign policy doctrine calling it leading from behind. which means we only act until we get the support of allies report
said there are only two entities in washington that lower approval raidings than george w. bush congress and the media so what are you going to do about it. and they continued to make things worse for themselves and for journalism with things like this. this is not the first time. this happened when congress woman gabrielle giffords was shot. everybody goes to the tea party website to see if there is a connection. i don't know any tea party member whose first and foremost passion is about the second amendment. the fact that they were looking for some connection immediately really is oh h offensive. >> mike: it would be like taking brian ross' name and saying we know there was a brian ross arrested for child molesting in upstate new york. >> oops, sore. >> karch: the wron sorry, wronn ross. >> is it more important to be right than it is to be first? >> i was the press secretary when the virginia tech shooting happened. when a crisis breaks, first reports are almost always wrong. hold back. wait a minute and let's see what the facts are. be rapid response even from a campaign side
w. bush to lead this court in a more conservative direction, initially was poised to strike down the key part of the health care law, but then, he changed his mind and the outcome of this entire case. >> cbs news, and its legal correspondent jan crawford, breaking the story earlier this week that chief justice john roberts originally decided with conservatives about the obama care mandate. while writing the decision changed his mind and the rest, as they say, is history. jim, the question is, how did cbs get that info and was it news for coverage of the court going forward? >> jan is a very good reporter and we assume that she got it from another justice. she had a lot of detail about anthony kennedy, you know, apparently spending a month trying to get roberts on this decision, it opens up a whole n new-- where to come from and information and including the courts now. >> it does seem strange, judy, the supreme court has been sort of a bastion of secrecy up until now. >> it has been and you could see up to the lead up of this decision, just about everybody, including jeffrey toob
presidents not doing this. but george w. bush did it, john mccain did it and presidential candidates did it. i think republicans need to end this tradition of appearing before the naacp to try and reach black voters. the type of black voters who may be open to voting republican are not at naacp conventions. you can go into communities and visit churches and visit small businesses. you can visit charter schools and so forth. you can advertise on black radio and black television programming. that's how you can reach people. there is no need to go before groups like this and try and seek black votes that way. i don't think it has been a very good strategy. >> what about getting credit? does he get credit foregoing into the liberal group like this saying, look, here is my argument on health care. here is my argument on education. get credit for bravery for reaching out and saying these are my convictions. you need to hear these. >> i just think his time and effort would be better spent on more persuadable people than who he is addressing there. he said all of the right things. >> amazing. >> th
organization and elaine chow the former labor secretary under president george w. bush. okay, david. i'm going to let you take a swing at this right off the bat. because when i saw these numbers come down, i thought to myself, wait a second. it wasn't too long ago when i believe it was senator obama complaining that george w. bush thought 200 or 300,000 jobs added was a good number. this is 80,000 jobs. this cannot be spun as good news for americans. >> it's not good news for america. let's recall though that obama made that complaint before we suffered the biggest financial crisis in american history, you know, after the wall street crash of 1929. we lost 9 million jobs as a result of that crisis when obama took office, we were hemorrhaging 700,000 jobs a month. unemployment hit 10%. so in many ways we have come a long way. we haven't lost any jobs in the last two years. we are making progress. clearly not enough progress. in retrospect that stimulus was not nearly big enough in 2009. that american jobs act that the president tried to pass last september should have been enacted by congress.
. the george w. bush institute has come out with a book called "the 4% solution", what does that mean, the 4% solution? >> means if we could grow our economy in real terms at 4% per year, over a sustained period of time, that we could begin to solve these, what appear to be intractable problems. if we don't grow at that rate. then i think there are going to be a lot of the shattered dreams in in country. we have to grow far faster than what obama economics is bringing us and we can do that with a set of policies and this book is about this, really brilliant people are writing chapters on a variety of different policy areas that combined could create the chance that we could achieve an aspirational goal of 4% per year over a decade of time. >> mike: and we've never really sustained that level of growth. so we're talking about we'll have to do something differently to get that kind of result, but what are the the things we've got to do to make that work? >> we'd have to have fiscal reform. entitlement reform, government can't the be consuming 25% of gdp and expect any kind of high growth solut
george w. bush did in 2004 in trying to define john kerry. they are doing it on certificate rides in a way we've not seen before with the amount of money and ground game behind it. they've made that choice. whether it works or not we have four months to see. it's totally different. megyn: why do they care about iowa's six electoral votes with all due respect. >> if he can put together the traditional republican states in this election the must win ohio and florida and thanks to karl rove plus one, one more, then mitt romney wins and iowa has got enough. megyn: you're seeing the numbers there is a piece out of the washington times from yesterday or today talking about how president obama is down with young voters, he's down with black voters, he's down with low-income white voters, he's down with post graduate white women and so all of these sort of, you know, erosions in his support are leading to a sense of concern about states that he did win handily the last time around. chris stirewalt thank you, sir. megyn: more for you now on why iowa matters so much for the president. his c
, they did that to george h.w. bush. they had him in his boat off the bay out there where he lives. here's a guy who at 18 years old, gorge h.w. bush, graduates from prep school, goes down and joins the navy, becomes a fighter bomber pilot and is shot down in the pacific, and they call him a wimp. within of the reasons they do, both these fellows are," if you will, look like wasp folks but there are a lot of those folks that have a lot of guts and courage and do a lot of things even though they are polite and have good manners. bob beckel is a guy, bob has guts, bob came on and work on my show, and even before that he was the chief salesman for jimmy carter for the panama canal treaty. you are talking about guts there. >> and it takes a lot of them, pat. and believe me, it does. >> also following you around when you were running for president was a dangerous thing to do but i did it anyway. >> but if i paid a dollar for "news ""i would put out a headline president cry baby because he can't take responsibility. he got everything he wanted passed and he blames everybody. why doesn't he tak
they did to george h.w. bush and like they are doing to romney. the left is being a caricature of itself. all the rotten comments and all the rest of it, i think they democrat their own credibility. those magazines used to be excellent, we all read them. >> the answer to your question is would newsweek do that, no. why? because they are a liberal publication. i understand that, you understand that. is barack obama going to get a fair shake from the national review? i mean, come on. it's the pay politics are played. newsweek is a liberal magazine and it ain't going very far. >> it's going far. >> let's put in 75 cents each and they will -- >> buchanan and beckel would have to take over the decks. we don't want to do that. >> but i remember when i said the devil got a hold of you when you did your convention speech. i remember that well and i was proud of that comment and you needly repeed it so you must have been proud of it. >> that speech down there? i was. i mentioned the nature you are is a cult cal war. that phrase has been used in a title in probably a thousand books ever since and
in the first six months, they are comparable to president george w. bush. of course he won in 2004, but that was the first presidential election after 9/11. the big issue was national security and the big issue now is the economy and, to have these disappointing numbers is a trouble spot and it means president obama has to attack mitt romney, out of touch and doesn't care about the middle class and it will be a negative campaign and close race. >> jamie: thanks to the brain room for keeping us on top of accurate numbers, john cleary today. we were discussing, he and i, of the last four months, three of them we have been at 8.2% and here's the numbers of job created in the first six months during an election year. re-election for these candidates. 8.2%. what are the expectations of the american people come november? >> i don't think much will change between now and then, the president has to make the case the economy is getting better, a little better and there is more work to be done but the -- earlier this year the economy was looking a little stronger and if you go back to the ye
the victims in a way that is free of politics. in the past president obama former president george w. bush had spoken at that event. >>> check out this cool video of a storm. the flashes you are seeing in the sky are bolts of lightening. temperatures are still scorching. expect 107 degrees. that is your 5 at 5:00. >>> house law americas voting to repeal the federal healthcare law. this shows legislation could cost a lot more than friends of obama claim. joining us from washington is mr. peter doocy. >> when the votes were tally this had repeal measure passed the house 244 to 158 and no republican defected. mark ross from arkansas, jim mestison and larry kis el from north carolina all voted in favor of repeal. it was the 33rd vote this gop controlled congress is put together to either repeal or de fund the affordable care act. the whole process is becoming a big time waster. >>> casting these votes begun and again and again probably on average once every few weeks does nothing to improve the got tomorrow line does nothing to send a single 18-year-old person to college. does nothing to help buil
is considered cool. romney is not cool, okay? so what do you want president, cool or confident. >> george w. bush, he was cooler whoever that dummy was that ran against him. gore. >> and then kerry. >> it was like eight years ago or something. >> i want to bring up social consciousness. it was being part of social groupings that are considered thoughtful. >> i don't think it necessarily means that. you see a cool dude and little girl and you buy her an ice cream. >> that is hunger. >> and it was basically saying -- >> if this is transmitted to companies as well because they are doing this corporate consciousness responsibility. >> gregg: this is an important story. from cool to pool, florida lifeguard, was fired for leaving his assigned area but he could get his whistle back. on monday, tomas lopez ran 1500 feet south of his zone after he was told a man was swim at your own risk. dolphin like dude helped rescue the guy but he was met with a pink slip. he has a policy toted to rescue someone outside their jurisdiction. in response to public outcry they offered his job back. they said to take
have done in the past, as well. like when former president george w. bush spoke at virginia tech university, just one day after 32 people were killed in a mass shooting on their campus in virginia. >> today i'd like to assure you a parent's love is never far from their child's heart. and as you draw closer to your own families in the coming days, i ask you to reach out to those who ache for sons and daughters who will never come home. >> reporter: so, when a particular part of the country is hurting the american public aren't the only ones paying attention. presidents do take note as well and, presidents do their best to help people heal but, jamie, the people of aurora, colorado are a long way away from being back to normal. >> jamie: probably settling in as well. it is terrible. thank you so much, peter. >> eric: a "fox news alert" now, this has to do with syria. where there is continued heavy fighting, reported in two of its largest cities. this as rebel forces battle government troops. there is ongoing fighting reported in the streets of the capital, damascus and it puts pres
will says who do you hold responsible for the trouble of the economy? 60% say george w. bush. >> kimberly: they believe obama. >> greg: this poll over whether things are worse off is misleading. if you are disgust by the idea of western exceptionalism, things worse off is seen as a success. as though america is fat kid that shed pounds of greatness. we're supposed to be injured. that's the point. you look perplexed. >> juan: i am perplexed. shock and awe, greg. [over talk ] >> kimberly: the president has to transform the country since 2009 inauguration. >> eric: i said the republicans -- this is a republican talk point. >> kimberly: we shall see. democratic congressman calling for school to be more like islamic school. this is our anniversary week. the fox turns one. we kick off the celebration this morning on fox and friends. we will continue this tonight. don't make a move. stay tuned. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >> eric: welcome back, everybody. first he accused the tea party of wanting "blacks hanging on a tree." now a democratic congressman andre carson thinks all public school should be
sense. but the top marginal rate was 39 when president george w. bush came in. cut to 35. i think if we get good deficit reduction, bringing it to 35, i think that helps the economy. >> greta: looking at that and i want to talk to you about health care. but i am curious about the tax question, i see it in the health care and the tax are targeted at a certain economic strat a. i am curious, how much additional revenue -- if you know -- will be in the treasury if the taxes go up as to people who make $250 thrnd or more i. income tax or the health care? >> greta: income. >> the income over a 10- >> greta: one-year period? >> with 10, it's $3... $150 billion for one year. >> greta: one year. i did a little research. that's about -- it costs $10 billion a day to run the federal government. so that's a 15-day, you are asking for 15 days. >> it's a drop in the bucket. here's some other things. we should find a way to fairly restrain entitlement spending, this is a personal view. i think that medicare benefits should not vest until later for younger workers, i would say that if a person's under
? >> reporter: 20 years ago, incumbent president george h.w. bush apologized after referring to the clinton-gore ticket as the two bozos. he told me he was conjuring the voice of democrats who don't take romney serious enough and added he regards romney as formidable candidate. >> john: there was an unusual fundraising pitch by the president today. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: he was aboard air force one friday night returning to the capital. he used a special phone that the campaign pays for to speak to group of prior donors. the truth is that the early money is more valuable than late money the president told the donors. it's fair to say if we wait to the last minute we could be in for a rude surprise. "i have gray hair," he added. "people are disappointed because they had a vision of change happening immediately and turns out it's hard." one of the callers recorded the conversation. >> john: we are hearing about travel arrangements for romney? >> he was slated to attend the summer olympics in london. we have confirmed that he plans to visit israel this summer for the sec
. people want to defeat president obama. george w. bush would win the election if he were on the ticket. and he would have the the enthusiastic support of republicans. >>neil: what about independents? still blame bush for much. >>governor huckabee: history will judge him far better than the editorial. >>neil: i agree. >>governor huckabee: they will look back more favorably. many things he did that are quite admirable. >>neil: but condoleeza rice is attached to a more controversial thing on the war and that is baggage. we can argue about that but that is still controversial. >>governor huckabee: a gathering in utah that romney had a lot of the finance people and the financial bundlers, and she was a speaker, and gave a rousing speech, and was well received, and, so, people started giving the buzz. now i have seen the headlines, but, that happens every few days. someone else is the buzz of the day. i don't honestly think she is that seriously considering it. she has been so adamant she doesn't like politics. he is a policy person not a political person. >>neil: they all say that. >>govern
of nevada and financial hurdles facing voters there. former deputy assistant to george w. bush and chris former chief of staff to senator joe manchon. i'm going to start with you, chris. president obama is going to attending a convention in reno. as we know nevada's economy is depressed. high foreclosures. what can the president say to gain support there? >> i think the president needs to make the argument why he has a better vision than governor romney. with the economic policies, social policies, in this case the veterans issues. he has done a lot of in terms of veterans and focusing on veterans during his precedency. nevada has been a tough hit state economically. high foreclosures, he is going to address that, but i think one of key distinctions between the two candidates, which one better understands you. look at all the polls. the poll that stands out again and again. again, if you look at the polls, one that stands out again and again. that is huge advantage for the president. >> arthel: people want to be understood, they want their problems to be understood but they want results.
george w. bush a second term in 2004, but, if the tide goes out on the economy, there is enough fluidity, there is enough fluidity there are enough moderate voters and swing voters you could see potentially a big romney victory if in fact the economy is in the dumps. certainly you could see a big swing for romney. megyn: now they're talking about yet another round of quantitative easing which is basically fire up the money printer. we need more dough to easingis quantitatively. does that have any meaningful impact on that chart we saw between now and november? does that in any way put points on the board for barack obama, the democratic party, the american people? >> well, first we should point out they don't even bother to print money anymore. they conjure it digitally. it is made into being as pixels. megyn: getting so ex-haas tiff for the guy in the back. >> but, yes, democrats hope that if the news is bad enough and bernanke, chairman bernanke can convince the other members of the federal reserve to go along with another splurp of federal reserve money to free up lending that it will
speech writer for president george w. bush and julie ro begin sky, former adviser to new jersey senator frank i lautenberg and -- frank lautenberg and a fox news contributor. this is not the first time we've seen joe biden deliver the message that the other guy, you know, romney, they just don't get you, or the republicans, they don't get the real working class, middle class americans. they don't understand them. this is all in the context of arguing for a tax hike on wealthier americans, marc, and he talked about that wealthy people are just as patriotic as poor folks, they're just as deem as middle class folks, but no one asks them to do anything and that they need to understand better the concept of shared responsibility. your thoughts? [laughter] >> well, i think, look, i think mitt romney has given them plenty of opportunities to make this kind of of attack from the swiss bank accounts in the cayman islands to the $10,000 bet with rick perry and all the rest. but let's not -- let's remember, barack obama is the guy who in 2008 said ha working class americans were bitter and were cl
be like george w. bush having only been up 6 points in alabama over john kerry in 2004. that is too close. if you're an incumbent president and democrat you need to be killing in michigan, it needs to be a total wipe out for you. you should not have to ror reabout spending resources there. in the i70 and north corridor going out from pennsylvania all the way out to iowa up into wisconsin, michigan, those states he's got big problems. democrats had huge problems there in 2010 and president obama has the worst numbers among white working class voters who are maybe as much as 40% of the election threa electorate since walter mondale. megyn: if bill clinton were running they'd say, there i my guy. i love bill clinton, the boy from hope. if they don't connect with president obama is bill clinton getting up there andt me, he's o it? >> i tell you what he's going to say. he's pretty good, he's not as good as i was, but he's pretty good, he's pretty good. megyn: there is risk of that with president clinton, there is very real risk of that. >> that's what he does. you remember in the springtime wh
it earlier like mark levin asking whether george w. bush managed to nominate someone who is much more liberal than the conservative supporters believed. megyn: in the wake of last week's healthcare decision america's psychiatrist dr. keith ablow is calling the president's law a virus that could actually wind up making people sick, at least in their mindset. dr. ablow joins me now. in addition to being a psychiatrist he's a member of our fox news medical a team. rel come back to the praopl. i thought your column was interesting. you talked about how there are obviously going to be economic costs to this law but you believe they pale in comparison to the cost to the american mindset. how so? >> absolutely. megyn, money is a metaphor. when you start acting, when the government begins to act as parent to its citizens as children, and says, we are going to earmark your after-tax dollars. i know this has been called a tax, but it's earmarking the money you take home, that you must spend it on certain things, that means literally that you don't know whether any of your money is really yours. today i

percent say wall street and 18 percent site former president george w. bush. others say it paks the economy better but as the recovery is taking longer due to the deep economic trouble he inherited while taking office. mr. romney attacks the president on the economy saying the president is out of ideas and out of excuses and back against squaring off. >>> live in washington kelly wright, thank you. >>> it is time for your first degree weather update with ms. maria molina. it is like hot an humid here. >> it is very gross across the northeast humid in new york city, temperatures in the 70s. we are going to deal with that in the early morning hours. as we head west ward the big story has been the extreme heat and extreme drought conditions as well. i want to show you a temperature right now. in kansas city it is 89 degrees very early this morning. this is a truly warm for this time of the day. 89 degrees in kansas city. 82 in the city of chicago. you are going to feel that warmth in the morning hours and afternoon hours you will feel the heat as well. kansas 100 degrees. we are ex
way he is addressing people who have had success. >> bill: the way i see this george w. bush had almost the same thing that people liked bush the younger, even when his policies on iraq and the economy were going south. they still separated his job performance from the man. and it seems like they are doing the same thing with barack obama. you know, he comes across as very accessible and kind of a certainly not an intimidating man. he keeps his composure almost always. so, while you are saying yeah, that his policy and his view of what american capitalism should be and i agree with that i think he made an enormous mistake saying that entrepreneurs really weren't responsible for their own success, i think that the folks are separating the policy from the guy. do you disagree. >> they always do that to the president. as you said, george bush had high ratings until the last maybe five or six weeks. and i think that's happening to the president. as he tries to walk away from what he just said, i think he is going to hurt himself even more. and you know he is saying he didn't mean wha
it for ford in 76, but then again for george w. bush in 2000 i had a couple of calls from prominent politicians who said it would really help me for my race back home because i was on the list if somebody could leak the fact that they were on the list. that was the big list. it was easy to get on the big list. the tough part is the small list the one under active consideration. the test on the small list, is this person capable of being president of the united states. that's usually a very, very short list. >> fascinating a big list and a small list. romney saying last week a decision will not be made while he is still overseas. >>> before you leave the house this morning let's get your first degree weather update with maria molina who has more potential of severe weather on the great lakes. they have been getting severe weather but not enough of the rain they need. >> exactly. we have 80 percent of the lower 48 under dry conditions. a combhing of the country experiencing drought conditions. we are not seeing a lot of rainfall with some of the storms. they are relatively isolated so
, if there were a lot of republicans saying no to president george w. bush in the republican national convention. i didn't see it. >> we should stress you're an encyclopedia on that. at that point, president-elect was unpopular and john kerry, 6 to # points ahead. >> there are a few examples this year of republican candidates, senator hellers from nevada, not going to the republican national convention. so there's about five of them. but if you look at the amount of democrats not going to the democratic national convention, we're well over a dozen candidates and those elected running for reelection. there's more to come, this is a very high number. >> if you're the president and get reelected, do you remember the folks who dissed in. >> in some cases i think he probably encourages them to -- i think in claire mccass cal as case he probably suggests she doesn't. he wants to retain the senate if he wants to get anything done. it's his advantage to have those do what they have to do to stay in office. >> all right, good seeing you again. have a great 4th. >> same to you. >>> coming up. >> i am payi
